Gainward GTX 560 Phantom reviewed


Metro 2033

The GTX 560 Phantom allowed for pleasant 1920x1080 gaming in AvP and Dirt 2, even with maximum graphics settings, but Metro 2033 reminded that it's still a mid-range card. After all, maximum graphics settings in this game (without PhysX) are too much to bear for some high end cards, let alone midrange. However, that's not to say that gaming at 1080p with the GTX 560 is impossible - you'll just need to decrease detail settings.

At 1920x1080 and no AA, the GTX 560 Phantom lags behind the GTX 560 Ti by 8.6 percent. Turning on AA, however, shortened the gap to 6.6 percent. The GTX 560 Phantom beats the GTX 460 by up to 16%.
